My husband and I ate at Taste the night before Valentine's Day. We sat outside, which was nice on a warm night. My dinner was so so so good. I had the Grilled All Natural Salmon with garlic roasted spaghetti squash, tomatillo fresca and chipolte-tomato chutney. I can't describe how great it was. My husband got the Kabocha Squash Risotto... More

This restaurant get packed easily for dinner so if you plan to come here you need to make a reservation at least 24 hrs in advance. The food is good although not a good selection of wine. Desserts are good as well. However I would say yes service was fell off my expectations. The service was slow, staff inattentive and... More

This was my third time there and as usual the food was really good. The atmosphere is very comfortable and the entire staff is very attentive. Michael at the hostess station has great people skills. He saw how tall I was and made sure I had a table which offered enough elbow and legroom. Our server Rudy was the perfect... More

We came across this restaurant by accident. Happy hour was still on so we had delicious snacks and pomegranate sangria. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. The chicken dish was very tasty. They have a lovely patio at the back which is very atmospheric.

The restaurant is by the corner of La Cienega and Melrose. You have the option to eat a la carte but they have great menu options. The service is excellent and they serve quite large portions. It is very well priced for the quality and amount of food you get. The chocolate bread pudding was to die for!

We had a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant seating is tight, but the food made up for it. There were four of us and we all ordered different dishes. Everyone was pleased with their selection.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
